yes. it weighs about 4 lbs, so it'll stretch at least an inch in length. it also measures 26", which is a perfect length. heavy wool needs to break in.

^ I may or may not have something similar to say on Tuesday.

hope you don't get hit with duties frown.gif

The direct order one still hasn't been made yet (but I'm pretty much resigned to duties)... I did buy thewho's though in the meantime.

sad. he shouldn't have sold it. they have a lot of stretch in them due to the weight. it's like armor though - blows SNS out of the water.

i am going to forecast and say it is too small for you cyc
I think my size 40 will be too (I'm a usual 38), but will not look short like teg's as mine is a long 6A. At the very least I can bum around at home with a warm Aran knit
post #104768 of 117670
you guys are terrible at knits. im sure if your'e a 38 a 40 will fit fine. you just need to wear it for more than 5 mins to give the wool a chance to fit to your body. knits break in just like jeans.

sorry teg, those nikes are ugly and completely incongruous. "i'm comfy" is a shitty excuse for a post on an internet fashion forum, otherwise i'd post fits in my sweatpants and slippers.

That may be so, but I also figured it wasn't the kind of knit I want in my wardrobe anyway. It didn't get nearly enough wear, and I'm glad I'm putting $$$ toward something that I've at least tried on before and that will work much better with other things I own.

Besides that, I kind of realized I don't want an armor-like knit. There are other knits cardigans I've seen now that I prefer, even if they aren't as warm.

I dunno man, it gets really cold out in the Midwest. I don't really want to own something I can't layer with.

edit: excessive use of "really"

Also, I'm not really sure this is a fair comparison. SNS and Inverallan make completely different kinds of knits.

are you drunk? those nikes aren't ugly, they're amazing. black montreals on a lunar sole. nike puts more 'design' and thought into their sneakers than 95% of fashion brands, and comparing them to slippers is retarded. there's a reason lots of people on SF buy flyknits and frees, and it's not because they're buying into the hype. extremely comfortable, stylish and versatile. i know you're all in your workwear niche, but you should know enough about clothing at this point to recognize nike for what it is - a marketing juggernaut that dominates its market like no other clothing brand in the world. look at how their sneakers have evolved over the last 5 years, and look at everything else. it's fine if you disagree with their inclusion in the outfit, but completely missing the point (and the place nikes occupy) is something else.
